You just made everyone's day Mac. Hehehe. Quick question though, in the second pic wherein you mention it doesn't totally cover the screen, do you mean like the sides and edges are "lifted" from the screen a bit or are they still flat and flushed to the phone's glass? I encircled the part where I'm a bit concerned as it seems the edges don't touch the screen fully

It's slightly raised where the curve falls off to the bezel.You can see the line where the curve starts if you enlarge the picture.You don't really notice it when the screen is on though.
Here's what comes in the package.................
You get the glass screen,a hard plastic squeegy,a anti static lint remover(blue package) and a moisten towelett.
I didn't need the squeegy at all..The glass screen has only 1 side to remove the plastic from,and that is the side you stick down.I just removed the phone from the case,powered down,cleaned the bare screen really good,then used the anti static tape (blue package) to stick on the screen as best as I could...it's very stickey so don't try to wipe it,stick it on and pull it off like using most other types of tape.I lined everything up for a dry run before removing the plastic off of it,and found lining it up with the bottom was best for my tired old eyes..It did leave more exposed on the top,but it still looks good and my fingers are always hitting the bottom of the screen anyways.
Once I was sure of it's positioning,I removed the plastic covering and holding it flush on the sides with my index and middle fingers,starting it down from the bottom pushing in the center of the sheild onto the display,making sure it was centered good.I did pull it up 1 time because I was off a little more and it suffered no ill effects since it wasn't pressed down hard. Once down,it was easy as pie to remove the few bubbles under it pushing them out with finger pressure only.
It's been on now for a couple days and it is without a doubt very good quality and should last a long long time.I needed this because of my job having to crawl in ceilings,under floors inside equipment so with the Insepio case on it being carried inside my horizontal carry PDair case...
It is well protected and rides very nice...the guys at work claim I'm carrying around a "Big Screen TV " on my hip..but it doesn't feel obtrusive at all and rides well out of the way.It rides much better with out the Insepio for sure,cause it does add some bulk to it that wasn't designed for it,but the elastic sides accomodates it very well..as you can see I've already have a few scratches on the leather.
Hope this helps,it's a good screen protector as far as I can see,and not too expensive or that long of wait. The case is expensive btw..but,in my line of work protecting a healthy investment of the phone is worth every penny.
